Honoka is an optimist who is never afraid to take risks. She is always in a good mood and likes to look at the bright side of things. She doesn’t enjoy eating red bean paste despite working at her family’s shop that sells Japanese sweets. She is determined and once her mind is set on something, nothing can stop her. This is believed to be the driving force behind μ’s formation and success.
As hobbies, she enjoys swimming and sticker collecting. Honoka also has a knack for finding loose change on the ground. (Source Link)
This figure actually arrived two weeks ago but since I didn’t have the right equipment to take a picture of it (my old phone camera sucks balls), I had to wait for my new camera to arrive before I start taking pictures.
I’m also planning on collecting a bunch of LL! stuff after this. Let’s go down deeper in idol hell this coming new year! ❤
I have so much crap to unbox this month but I’ll feature this first because it’s amazing and it’s lovely and uguu (and if you haven’t noticed, Honoka is my favorite character in Love Live! Don’t ask why, she’s simply the most perfect thing that ever existed in this world).
I bought this figure for almost $30 and the quality is a bit astounding for something within that price range. After taking her out of her box, I placed her close to my Alphard figure to compare and noticed how the quality of both figures to be a bit similar which is surprising especially with the price difference between the two.
What is even more lovely is her pose. It’s a typical idol pose but it does a wonderful job to capture Honoka’s really cheerful and optimistic character. The super detailed hair movement (along with the hair decorations) look so fine as well.
Also, upon close inspection, I have to remark that the figure has tons of small details, ranging from the top ornaments, frills, thigh anklet and her boots. I am not sure if it’s a leader thing or not, but Honoka seems to be the one with the fine points in her attire so it’s really neat that Houjun did his darn best to get everything in it and make everything look visually pleasing to the eyes by how everything is sculpted.
Personally, I chose to get this version because it is my most favorite μ’s costume in the anime, and Honoka looks darn gosh cute as fuck in it so it was worth every penny.
Welp. I’ll try my best to feature upcoming figures in a better setting next time. Most of them are currently stationed on my office desk because I don’t have a display case at home. It doesn’t seem right to just leave them here. (◞‸◟；)
(suffering) note! I’ve also decided to get Maki and will order it next month so I can have the two together, side by side.
